“This latest agreement is a part of our ongoing process of moving towards a more efficient and effective way to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Stuart Fox, president of Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems.
“The team at GMS Pacific has more than 20 years’ combined experience working with Kongsberg solutions. We are delighted to now begin this partnership as the exclusive digital finishing solution provider for its business.
“With this distribution agreement, we are living up to our ethos of ‘global presence, local service.’ While we realize a company our size doesn’t necessarily have the scale to offer the level of service we’d like in all parts of the world, having GMS Pacific as a local full-service distributor will enable us to give our customers across Australia and New Zealand the level of attention they deserve.
“GMS Pacific holds stock of spare parts and Kongsberg consumables in their Australian and New Zealand warehouses, so customers can enjoy the full range of sales and follow-up services and speak to a representative in the same local time zone, improving their experience and removing potential delays,” Fox said. “One of our digital finishing tables will be installed at the company’s Australian headquarters, giving customers the opportunity to have a close-up look at the impressive machinery in action.”

Andrew McNamara, managing director of GMS Pacific, said: “Kongsberg PCS is the leader in its markets and a great fit with GMS Pacific. We are delighted to be cementing our relationship with Kongsberg, establishing a dedicated team to support customers achieving their own business growth through distributing the leading range of digital finishing solutions and technological advancements in the field.”
Kongsberg showcased its latest innovations for the sign and display market – including a new table and the new VariAngle tool - at the FESPA Wide Format virtual event in May 2021.
